What do you guys think about the new NYPD Patrol vehicle design? MHO I’ve never seen something so tacky on police cars. Coming from Europe when I was young - the US and especially NYC and LA police always seemed like the most badass police departments in the world with the best-looking vehicles and uniforms etc. and now this?
Don’t love it but it’s not so bad. Believe me, drive around the country and you will see far worse.
I don’t think it’s that bad. I had no idea there’s an over 100 year old flag for the NYPD so I learned something new.
I think it’s a nice nod and incorporation. Although I can understand the hesitance to clad everything in flag colors (cough cough Cuomo wrapped subway cars).
I wish the NYPD would go back to the design that they used on cars in the 1980s/90s and incorporated into it Battenburg markings (yellow, reflective elements) which are very popular in Europe, but for some reason not so much in the US. That would look cool.
It’s flown at most parades and at 1 police plaza downtown.
I’m fine with the new colors, I’m just glad it’s not all black like a lot of suburban agencies use. Police should be easy to identify and not intimidating. That ideal got lost sometime along the way in the US.
I think new NYPD cruiser should look more like this:https://barrie360.com/barrie-police-battenburg-cruisers/
The corruption & incompetence in the NYC Mayors office is exceeded only by the senility & corruption in the White House. These are strange time in the realm of American political leadership. IMHO -
I wish I was as good at something as the Daily Mail is at clickbait.
I hope I don’t get sued for defamation for suggesting that I thought these were dangerous and am glad they’re being demised.
Update on West Park Presbyterian Church on West Eighty-sixth Street
tis the season.
Cool little fact about Mayor Adam’s zoning plan: new and EXISTING buildings will get a 20% height boost in exchange for adding 20% affordable housing. I wonder which existing buildings would take advantage of that. Maybe 53w53?
Idk if people understand just how important eliminating parking minimums would be. That’s a HUGE step towards improving affordability!
Eliminating parking minimums also reduces the number of autos; another big plus. Double gain: fewer cars, less expensive housing. The parking minimum is a hidden tax on folks who don’t need or want a car.
